Curved text - HELP!!!!!!
on Nov 25, 2005 at 6:35:21 am

I've designed DVD Disc Artwork using Epson Print CD. I'm getting some discs mass replicated and need to send them the artwork as a 300dpi jpeg. I'm trying to re create the disc using photoshop but......oh man, trying to get the curved text that runs around the perimeter has got me pulling whats left of my hair out. Why is this so difficult in Photoshop?

Can anybody show me a quick way to achieve this?

Hadn't really tried this in Photoshop before..(normally use Corel Draw for this)..but your post made me curious...

I drew a circle..then clicked with the text tool near the top edge and typed..and text thus went in a circle.

Text can then be edited by the normal character options if you want to adjust things like spacing between letters etc.

Also found this link which goes into more depth

btw...have you got Photoshop CS or CS 2? If you have an earlier version then it sounds like it was a real pain to do...Illustrator..Corel Draw or Freehand would no doubt be easier then.
